UNICEF: Does "Vacancy Expired" mean the position has been filled, or does it only refer to the application period?

Post by blank_space » 27 Dec 2018, 17:45

Hi all,

Quick question — If a vacancy is listed as "expired" in the UNICEF system, does that simply mean they are no longer taking applications, or that the application process has ended and they have selected a candidate? My current application status for a posting that stopped taking applications on Dec 5 is "Application Acknowledgement." I applied in November.

Thank you for any input or help!

Expired logically mean cancelled/ended (in terms of VA - what is ended the closing date or the Vacancy is cancelled - it's hard to say without knowing exact days of status updates). If the closing date was set December 5 and now the VA is expired (as you mentioned) first thing you make sure when the VA status been updated ? (not the application status)....

In UNICEF that should mean that they don't take any applications any longer. The moment it says "Recruitment outcome" or similar the candidate has been selected...
I'm Sebastian from the UN Job List. I know about the UN Job List and also a little about the UN in general.

UNICEF creates a profile for you when you apply, you can see the application status on your dashboard.
